FLASHBACK: LULU, LENNY, SALOMÉ AND FRIDA WIN EUROVISION ON MARCH 29, 1969

The crazy Eurovision year 1969! The final in Teatro Real in Madrid ends up in tie-break with four songs! There were no rules like today how the solve the problem so they were all declared the winners. One can't really compare the situation but if today's rules were present France would have been declared the winner. Nine countries had voted both France and Spain (and 8 voted UK and only 7 the Netherlands), but France got twice 4 points compared to Spain's highest being 3 times 3. As said, the voting and points system was different than today (Each country had 10 votes to divide)  so this is not quite comparable. 
Salomé recorded her entry in eight languages and has continued to release albums, the latest being from 2014.  
Lulu was and still is a big star and continues to record and perform. She recorded her song also in German. 
Lenny Kuhr continues to record and perform. She recorded her entry in six languages. 
Frida Boccara sadly passed away in 1996 but her music lives on dozens of compilation albums that have been released since her death. Her entry is recorded by her in five different languages.
